|The Fragmentary i EP - Photophob|
"Here comes 2006 and with it, a new release by Photophob (tonatom, binkcrsh), known for his release on the sucessfull american label Hive records and for co-founding the netlabel laridae. The Fragmentary I ep brings idm back to camomille the way we like it, dynamic, evolving and ecclectic. Herwig weaves a perfect balance between rhythm and ambience and creates waves of intertwining melodies that make us feel at home in its warmth, yet alienates us in its coldness...

"A little summer gift for my dear friends, fans and followers: a mini album of previously unreleased, melody driven (and for the most parts alarmingly happy) braindance stuff. No label, no concept, no nothing. Just some lighthearted music from me to you. Enjoy!"

|Photophob - The Circadian Rhythms Reissue - Photophob|
"To become a man, you have to go through pretty rigorous stuff that is pretty mind-numbing. And hurtful." This quote (from track Nr. 3 'Just to make it 17') marks the beginning of Photophob's attempt to produce the retrospective soundtrack for the process of growing up as a boy. "Circadian Rhythms" is the result, the sound of an elapsed childhood, from daydreaming nostalgia to fear and insecurity. This album has originally been released as CD-R on laridae.at in 2007...

|photophob - about the living things [laridae028] - photophob|
the wonder of life. the coincidence of being. photophob celebrates the origins of organic life by dedicating eight tracks to eight different microorganisms, floating lazily through the waters of a primeval ocean or crawling nosily around the crusty surface of the earth's first landmasses. eight tracks, neglecting nearly every form of freaky beat programming or spacy sound effects, making them more digestible than most of photophob's breakbeat oriented works...

|photophob - digitalis [laridae003] - photophob|
digitalis is the first full length album by photophob on laridae. 50 minutes of ambient, easy listening and space idm, forming the soundtrack for an imaginary science-fiction-movie. or maybe a computergame, who knows ... it's all about highly frequented spaceports and asian megacities located in the outer regions of the known universe, about huge starships, crashed on lonely planets with purple oceans and silver moons, about cosmic passenger ships, performing their docking manoeuvres like an ele...

tonAtom artists are always ahead of their time. and think of the coming autumn while remembering the past one. photophobs second release (after tantalus) on tonAtom is finest ambient with the melancholy of the volatile, somewhat morbid and really fascinating.

OK - this is gonna be MASSIVE. Photophob's 'Urban Dialectics' gets torn apart by…. Hecq (Hymen Records), Simon/off (Immerse Records), Beitegeuze (laridae.at), Tomoroh Hidari (Isolate / Record Label Records), Dr. Nachtstrom (Mego), Coppice Halifax (Milieu Music / EED) and Firnwald (laridae.at / Miga / tonAtom / Hippocamp …). You want this.

|Photophob - Skaphander Skanks [laridae039] - Photophob|
After concentrating on different side projects Herwig Holzmann is back with a brandnew album under his main moniker "Photophob". On "Skaphander Skanks" he again devotes himself to what he just seems to love most: Retro Science-Fiction influenced fast-forward Drill 'n bass absurdities, full of cheesy overdone pathos and hyperactive breakbeats, puckishly scattered to the four cosmic winds. If you liked Photophob's "Music for Spaceports" releases, this is for you! So, turn on your autopilot, releas...

Listen to the wind, mindlessly playing with the sand beneath your feet. Look at the sky, as it's pressing down on you, heavy and thick. You feel that something is about to happen. Watch it come down!

|photophob - within [laridae008] - photophob|
actually produced as "macon tights" back in 2001/2002, this album is, according to photophob, a quite personal trip through the feelings he had at that time. it's not as mature as his recent works, but provides a nice and dense atmosphere throughout the whole recording. everything seems to spin around a dreamy and nostalgic theme of losing childhood, growing old and falling in love. kitschy feel-good idm meets romantic ambient.

|Photophob - Music for Spaceports [EAR014] - Photophob|
Photophob claims the title of being the first artist to have his work released on Earstroke from a demo submission. inspired by the label, Photophob created an album specifically with us in mind, and it fits like a glove. Music for Spaceports is fun-loving, playful, electronica.
